The main ingredient of our Mango Mate Energizer is a roasted yerba mate. Yerba Mate has the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate" all in one beverage. Mate is one of the only stimulants that provides energy and nutrition. Mate is made from the naturally caffeinated leaves of the South American rainforest holly tree (Ilex paraguariensis). For centuries, the native tribes have sipped mate from a traditional mate gourd for its health benefits. The leaves of the rainforest mate tree naturally contain 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, abundant antioxidants. The Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific society in March of 2002 concluded "it is difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to mate in nutritional value and [mate] contains practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life."
Mate has a low tannin content allowing it be strong like coffee with out becoming bitter. Unlike coffee, mate is not oily and acid forming, so it is less likely to cause stomach acid and jitters.
Mate can be prepared a number of ways, can be consumed hot, or cold, and honey or even milk.

The furious animal fell on its wound, at the same time that a new arrow went through its heart. Once the fight had finished, the Guarani offered the ladies hospitality so they went to his hut. He lived with his wife and daughter who treated them kindly and told them that Tupá does not like the ones who do not offer hospitality to their visitors.
The following day Yarí announced that it was time to leave. The woman and the daughter saw the two adventurous ladies to the door and the Guarani went with them a little while. He told them why he lived in isolation: when his daughter grew up, uneasiness, anxiety and fright invaded his spirit, so he decided to get far away from the community where he lived so that his daughter, in isolation, could keep the virtues that Tupá had given her.
When Yarí and Araí were alone, they
